Additional Landscaping & Decor
Bring the countryside of Tuscany to your doorstep with beautiful landscaping and decorative finishes. Wrought iron highlights are popular in Tuscan design, so consider adding wall sconces, lamps, and fireplace accoutrements and screens. Add paintings featuring sweeping vistas of the Italian countryside or works by famous Italian painters, or consider mosaic tiling on countertops and tables. Decorative mural walls are also not uncommon.
Beautiful, romantic gardens are also common in Tuscany. Sprawling expanses of herbs, climbing roses, and terracotta planters shelter stunning fountains and statues while flagstaff paths wend their way between mediterranean flowers and stone benches.
